Book Review of CORNERSTONE by JM LeDuc

CORNERSTONE (Phantom Squad Series) was written by JM Leduc and published by Suspense Publishing in June, 2013. You may purchase this book at www.amazon.com and you may learn more about this author at http://maa0043.wix.com/jmleduc

CORNERSTONE by JM LeDuc would be considered in the genre of Christian fiction, but this author has brought to life a stunning action-adventure in the same arena with James Rollins and Brad Thor. LeDuc’s ‘Phantom Squad’, with leader Brent Venturi, can match wits with the best of them and does in this fourth installment of the Phantom Squad Series.

Venturi’s loss of faith, brought on by the death of his beloved wife, Chloe, sends him into a tailspin and back to the ‘beginning’, a monastery at the base of Mt. Ararat where he must face his maker in order to understand his destiny. Then, with the help of his newest prot├ęge’, Tag Achek, a Cree warrior and hardened Army sniper, Venturi must find a way to save the President of the United States and the members of the Phantom Squad from torture and death at the hands of an enemy from within.

JM Leduc is thrilling readers once again with his writing style and hard-edged approach in this exciting new page-turner. The characters are smart, capable and deadly, while the action is electrifying and continuous throughout this much anticipated sequel. I am personally, an action-adventure junkie of the tenth magnitude and this novel had my blood racing and my fingers itching to turn the pages. LeDuc’s research is spot-on and his religious representations almost saint-like. I must say, this is one of the most satisfying stories I have read in a while. Literary Awesomeness!!!

5 spiders for CORNERSTONE and JM LeDuc… GO GET THIS BOOK!
